Through the Prism

After passing through the prism, each refraction contains some pure essence of the light, but only an incomplete part. We will always experience some aspect of reality, of the Truth, but only from our perspectives as they are colored by who and where we are. Others will know a different color and none will see the whole, complete light. These are my musings from my particular refraction.

Charming, Funny Fellows

Fragments of a Fable

Followed by:
A bit further on, the bird and the worm came upon a snake traveling in the same direction.  "Would you mind giving us a ride?" asked the bird.  "We are tired and we are not supposed to get a ride from any foxes, but you are clearly not a fox."

 . . .

The snake was hungry, so he decided to gobble down the bird and the worm right away.  He quickly whipped his head around!  His sharp with fangs flashed as he opened his mouth as wide as he could and . . .

"Wait! Stop!" shouted the bird. "You can't eat us!  We are charming, funny fellows!"

"Once you get to know us you will be unable to devour us!" added the worm.

"I don't want to get to know you," hissed the snake.  "I find you tiresome and annoying."

He snapped his jaws shut, but the bird and the worm jumped out of the way just in time and fled.

They ran into the bushes and hid from the snake.

"He is not very nice at all!" exclaimed the bird.

"It's a shame he never took the time to get to know us," lamented the worm. . . .
